  1. High bounce wedges, did not work and short game went to crap.
  2. I've tried the TP5 as I've found them or swapped a sleeve with a buddy. Right now, after the Srixon Z-Star, which I've been playing for years, this is my second favorite ball. What is also surprising is that while the Callaway soccer balls, Srixon Divide, and TM Tour Response stripe bug the crap out of me, the PIX does not. Odd that I find that one not distracting, wonder what the reason is...
  3. I also bought two dozen of these, and I took them to hit on a sim. Just a net, no wall behind them. I noticed the wedge shots put a little fuzz on the ball but no marks or damage from irons or woods. I am hoping they hold up a bit better than @Shepardspi showed when I take them to the course. If not save them for my bad days or a course with a ton of water.
  4. I played Witcher 2 and started 3 but got the Switch. So I'll be restarting that in a few months. Zelda is in the GOAT discussion as a franchise IMO.
  5. Wow a lot to catch up on. For Father's Day my wife got me a Switch. I bought Zelda: Breath of the Wild and it took me about 7 months to complete that game. Which was amazing and I can't wait to play Tears of the Kingdom. Now I'm going through Mass Effect Legendary Edition (Renegade path) and Borderlands 2 GOTY. Borderlands 1 is one of my favorite games ever, but it's taken me a little bit to get into Borderlands 2. I've restarted playthroughs a bunch though. This time I'm playing the Mechromancer. Lilith was my jam in BL1, but the Siren in BL2 seems a lit weaker. When I finish those I'll probably play Witcher 3. I also need to catch up on the Forza series, games like Divinity and Dragon Age, and maybe tackle some of the FromSoft games. As of right now I have no desire to get a PS5 or a X Box X/S. It's been 4-5 years now and there is one game that has come out for these systems I want to play - Baldur's Gate 3. I can see myself buying the next gen Nintendo, especially with two kids, but otherwise switching to PC.
  6. Srixon, you get a lot more with them as they make more than just clubs.
  7. This is the way. Nothing wrong with buying previous years models, or used clubs in general. This game is expensive enough, save yourself hundreds of dollars by buying one year old equipment. New is new, a driver isn't going to expire sitting on the shelf.
  8. just go, do whatever as long as your @$$ is off the course in 4 hours.
  9. Coffee and water for morning rounds. Gatorade or an electrolyte powder in water on hot days. If I'm drinking beer usually Coors Light, Miller, or Labatt. Only liquor on the super cold rounds.
  10. I base my tee choice on handicap, I look up the course handicap in GHIN and play the furthest back tees that don't raise my cap, or only raise it a stroke or two.
  11. Based on the name, you can guess, but I die it into the hole. A putt hit too hard will spin out, a dying putt will slip in. I know no one likes leaving a birdie short, but it's still a 2-putt and one a little short is easier to make than one runs past a few feet. And I don't agree with this 'exactly 18 inches past' Dave Pelz crap.
  12. Don't sleep on Ohio golf we have lots of courses designed by the best architects of all time (Ross, Fazio, RTJ, Nicklaus) and some of the top rated munis in the country. Also, our most expensive courses top out at around $75, which is incredibly cheap compared to a lot of the country.
  13. I just bought 2 dozen of them. I got an email offer for the same price on Super Bowl weekend. I hope they are comparable to the prior MTB X.
  14. My 50* is only full shots up to 130 yards. My 54* is 90-110, and I use it out of greenside bunkers. Everything else inside 100 is my 58*. Though if I'm playing a bump & run, it's a 7 iron.
